US withdraws Abrams tanks from Latvia

302
The Pentagon decided that American Tanks Abrams are not the military equipment that can show its effectiveness “in the open spaces” of Latvia. The main US military department concluded that it would be more expedient to replace heavy tanks with less massive armored vehicles. Informational portal Delphi reports that today, on January 13, 2016, the rotation of the American military contingent in Latvia is being carried out, and at the same time tanks are being withdrawn Abrams Books.


US withdraws Abrams tanks from Latvia


170 American troops of the 2 Cavalry Regiment arrived on the territory of the Republic of Latvia and will be based on the local armed forces. The 2 Cavalry Regiment itself is deployed in Germany.

The Adazi military base is abandoned by the Abrams 8 and the Bradley 9 BTR. Tomorrow armored vehicles will arrive in Latvia instead. Stryker, as well as several SUVs Humwee. As reported in the American command, these machines "will be more efficient in Latvian conditions and require less costs for operation and maintenance."

At one time, the Latvian authorities asked American partners to leave tanks in the country on an ongoing basis, apparently not caring about what tasks the American Abrams will perform in the Latvian swamps ... In the Latvian segment of social networks, the withdrawal of American tanks was already called “the end of powerful advertising action ", which was called" Save Latvia from Russian aggression! "

          Something I remembered a movie about a replica about a sand pit:
          Thousands of abandoned street children roam the expanses of South America. In Brazil, they rummage through garbage, beg and steal. Their house is a street, they are embittered and lonely. In order not to disappear alone, they are knocked down in packs and terrorize the "prosperous" bourgeois. One such flock found refuge among the sand dunes, on the ocean. The people call them - "generals of sand pits." These guys are ready to fight for a piece of bread, and you won’t envy anyone who gets in their way - these boys are dangerous and cruel.

        So they do not have tanks at all in service, maybe there are a couple of Soviet ones left, somewhere in the museum of "occupation", so for Latvians 8 Abrams is like a whole tank division.

                    Armata tower - uninhabited. The platform is universal - you can mount anything. Armor is composite. there is steel, and ceramics, and also horseradish knows what. Hence the relatively low weight with large dimensions.

                        Why should it be armored from shells, if there is only a gun, cartridges for active protection, at first I thought that the armor on the tower was a fake hiding the contours of the tower, but I watched a movie about Armata on the Zvezda channel, where they “stripped” the tower , and realized that it was purely from large-caliber bullets and nothing more. I think that hinged hull screens are tanks with liquid armor, gel, which, with a dynamic impact, increases its density at the impact site, but gel is only an additive to metal balls inside the tanks, breaking the cumulative jet.

                    All three at once: Well, you and the darkness! A small excursion into history: By the beginning of the battle of Kursk, all the artillerymen who lost their guns (threw) were sent to other fronts, from other fronts they brought calculations that had victories over tanks. One of the trainings for anti-tank crews with 45s was hitting the barrel of a tank with an armor-piercing projectile, for 122 mm howitzers with a projectile speed of less than 500 m / s, firing volleys at one tank (incapacitating the crew, without breaking through the armor). If you are so afraid for a disabled weapon, then book it along the entire length from the cradle to the barrel cut, since breaking it anywhere is 100% refusal to fire. And one more thing for the "especially gifted" there is no tower, no tower breaking! what to punch if there is no tower. There is a booking for the charging mechanism, which is located in the body of the tank. Learn the history of tank building in order to have an idea of ​​the tank's vulnerabilities: this is the barrel - along its entire length, this is the propeller. Damage to unarmored parts still leads to the temporary failure of the tank.

With the standard armored hull width for a post-Soviet tank, you won’t say that about Armata because of the rearrangement of the crew compartment with shoulder to shoulder and three hatches.

And what’s in the tower Armats may have fewer cavities due to the lack of crew, and that this gives some relief.

    So the 2 Challenger in the maximum configuration is several tons heavier than Abrams, even with TUSK. Leo will be heavier. But with the T-14, the somehow declared mass in 48-50 tons was sad to think that the sides would be of pressed plywood. And taking into account the fact that a sufficiently large party went to military tests, it will not be radically redone.
    If you look at the tanks in profile and full face - Leo and Abrams will be much more massive due to the tower.

    A 76-mm projectile weighing 6 kg, when it hits the armor at 90 degrees (without ricochet), releases energy equal to the daily work of the Dneproges. And 26 kg., ??? The commander of the SU-122 with a 122 mm howitzer in his memoirs recalls how they fired at the "tiger" with a volley of 4 guns, after the first volley the crew got out of the tank and the tankers vomited blood. Not a single penetration of the frontal projection, and four "Tigers" were taken as trophies. With modern ammunition, any hit is either a penetration or contusion of the crew. Now, the first place is not confronting the projectile, but shooting first and knocking down the gunner's sight. Active protection - disabling electronic sights and destroying ATGMs when approaching a tank.

For the sake of what did they hold, or did they think that 8 antediluvian Abrams would save Latvia, which did not even have an automatic loader and, accordingly, the rate of fire depends on the crew’s fatigue? Here Latvians remind Indians who believed that Europeans are sons of gods, and they are indestructible, also Latvians believe that Americans are indestructible. They live in error, but they cannot live without foreign troops - after all, so many f * ck were poured onto the Russian Federation, now the toy terrier is scared.

      it’s not worth it to idiocy to bring talk about rate of fire and loader
      where did you see that the tank is standing and continuously dispensing shells from the hose?
      The vast majority of skirmishes will be limited to less than 10 shots.
      besides, overheating of the main gun will also not allow to shoot for a long time, even though load the shells with ribbons.
      Or do you mean an apocalyptic and no less delusional situation, when a super-masked Abrams faces a long field, thousands of T-54 tanks barely crawl through it, and he shoots as it reloads? So it won’t be like that at all.
      In Europe, the terrain is such that tanks often collide at close range.

In general, all the big bridges have this feature, so it's not a secret for a long time repeat At the school, the military instructor told me about this even in school, in the year 78

    I cannot understand why a "Latvian patriot" has not yet appeared who has stolen an abrashka from a wild eastern neighbor?
    Where is the GRU looking?
    request

    We really need an abrashka for shelling, or, at worst ... to Kubinka in the hangar of foreign vehicles.
    And then such an opportunity disappears, and a lot of money is spent on driving.
    yes
    And, I realized, the overseas gusli is afraid of our dirt ...
    Well, that’s logical.
    Then the hijacking really doesn’t work out.

      In principle, it is better to know REALITIES. For we are talking about the reconnaissance unit (armored cavalry regiment), which has vast experience acquired in the course of fulfilling duties on the border of the Federal Republic of Germany with the German Democratic Republic and Czechoslovakia. And the name is just a tribute to tradition.

    The Abrams are too heavy for the European DB theater with its rugged terrain. They are only suitable for savannas, deserts and prairies. But what will replace them, the decommissioned M-48 aphids M-60? Although, for these warriors and "Shermans" will come down.

    logical decision. The transport infrastructure is underdeveloped, logistics, maintenance and supply are very difficult. Maintenance is expensive. 8 tanks will not stop a probable "invasion". The psychological pressure did not work out.

    The Americans will gather their tank forces into "fists" in the main directions. And the Baltic states, in case of war, they still will not hold and they perfectly understand this.
